Call for Papers CEC2015 Special Session "Evolutionary Exploration of Design Spaces"

Special Session for IEEE CEC 2015.


The aim of this special session is to serve scientists and practitioners, who are dealing with Design Space Exploration (DSE), to exchange ideas about DSE, and about methods to overcome the computational challenge that is inherent to it.


The scope of this special session includes:

  • Evolutionary and hybrid search algorithms for DSE
  • Multi-objective  and many-objective DSE (multiobjectivization)
  • Multi-scenario-based DSE
  • Novelty based DSE
  • Problem formulation and re-formulation
  • Evolving design scenarios
  • Subspaces as design concepts (conceptual solutions)
  • Preference of sub-spaces and conceptual designs (concepts)
  • Design-space representations and automated concept generation
  • Mixed methods from Machine Learning, EC, and Multi-criteria Decision Making
  • Knowledge discovery and knowledge confirmation
  • Extraction of design rules and innovization
  • Extraction of creative conceptual and particular solutions
  • In-process visualization and signaling
  • Interactive setting of search parameters
  • Handling of multi-modality in DSE
  • DSE with uncertainties
  • DSE and the Toyota 2nd Paradox (set-based concurrent engineering)
  • Complexity and efficiency
  • Surrogate models for DSE
  • Parallel processing for DSE
  • Taxonomy and characteristics of DSE systems
  • Demonstration of DSE with real-life problems
  • DSE for educating novice engineers
  • Model validation with DSE
  • Any other relevant topic


Paper Submission Deadline: December 19, 2014
